Selling points: Kardinya is ideally situated between Fremantle and the Kwinana freeway, making getting around simple and easy. It has a great local shopping centre, is well serviced in regards to public transport, hosts St John of God Hospital (private) and Fiona Stanley Hospital (public) is under construction in neighbouring Murdoch, along with Murdoch University. This makes it very popular with investors.

Most sought after properties: Three-four bedroom family homes costing up to $600,000 sell very well, as do smaller properties such as villas and subdivided properties for up to $500,000. The market is very buoyant between $400,000 and $600,000, and slowing down as you move upwards with only four sales between $800,000 and $1.6m in the last six months.

Most common properties: Three-bedroom 1970s brick and tile and 1980s four-by-two ‘formal lounge and dining’ homes.

Top amenities: Kardinya Primary School is local. The suburb doesn’t have a high school, but Melville High School is nearby; Corpus Christi in Bateman; Murdoch College, Winthrop Baptist College and Somerville Baptist College in Murdoch; plus Murdoch University as mentioned earlier. The local shopping centre is Kardinya Shopping Centre; restaurants include a Chinese restaurant, Malaysian restaurant, Kardinya Tavern, Vegetarian restaurant, a Supa IGA and doctors’ surgery. There is hype surrounding the under construction Fiona Stanley hospital. Kardinya is home to various sporting clubs that use the Morris Buzacott sporting grounds which include AFL, tennis, lawn bowls, hockey and cricket.

Local industry and business:  With easy access to the CBD, Fremantle and industrial hubs of Bibra Lake and O’Conner, there is no stand out employers; in fact the area enjoys very low unemployment.

Recent changes: Kardinya Shopping Centre underwent major renovations and expansion about 10 years ago, and the local council (Melville City) has been continuously beautifying the area, planting street trees and sustaining parks. Housing density is slowly increasing and with it comes new, modern homes that inject life into the area.

Best streets: The older areas of Kardinya, particularly behind the shopping centre are very popular at the moment. Most blocks are duplex size, can be subdivided and are also well serviced by public transport and close to the shopping centre, and Morris Buzacott sporting facilities.

Public transport: There are a number of bus routes including the 940 straight to the city, via Garden City Shopping Centre. The 503 will get you to either Bull Creek or Murdoch Train Station within five minutes, the 99 to Murdoch Train Station in three minutes, the 511 to Murdoch Train Station in five minutes, and the 98 to Fremantle in 10 minutes.

Main arteries: South St is the major east/west artery that will get you to Fremantle in around 10 minutes and to the Kwinana freeway in the opposite direction in three minutes. Once you’re on the freeway heading south you’ll be in Mandurah in about 45 minutes, Bunbury in 1h 45 min, and Margaret River wine country in 2.5 hrs. Go north on the freeway and you’ll be in the city in anything between 10 minutes and half an hour depending on traffic.
